The Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, spoke tough today, insisting that the group would go ahead with its planned declaration of independence on October 1 if the Nigerian government failed to adhere to the demand to restructure the country.
The group in a statement by its spokesperson, self-styled Brig Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, also prayed for President Muhammadu Buhari and Northern governors to discover oil in commercial quantity in the North.
Its words “The October 1st declaration of independence is still sacrosanct if the Nigeria government fails to retrace its step by restructuring this country.”
“Our prayer for Buhari and the Northern hypocrite (Northern Governors) is that oil should be found in commercial quantity in the North, so they can let the Niger Delta go,” the militant group asserted.
It asserted:” The Buhari-led government has failed Nigerians with their misdirected policies that has divide the country and as such, nobody wants to be part of that failed state not even the Niger Delta.”
The group warned that the day of reckoning was close to those using the name of NDA to defraud people.
